of the leaders of the so-called gang of eight, democratic senator chuck schumer. senator, welcome back to "can meat t meet the press." is a deal at hand for immigration reform? we know about the issue having to do with visas and wages between the business lobby and the labor lobby. is a deal done? >> well, with the agreement between business and labor, every major policy issue has been resolved on the gang of eight. now everyone, we've all agreed, that we're not going to come to a final agreement until we see draft legislative language and we agree on that. we drafted some of it already. the rest will be drafted this week and so i am very, very optimistic that we will have an agreement among the eight of us next week. senator leahy has agreed to have extensive markup and debate on the bill in april, and then we go to the floor, god willing, in may. i hi we're on track. >> you were quoted as saying the deal is near, the deal is at hand, and all of that coverage got senator rubio, the republican, part of this gang of eight to say, whoa, whoa, whoa, no deal yet. that we're closer. so is there dis

of the process. if harry reid and chuck schumer try to ram it through it will not pass. >> chris: what about the danger it ends up getting anybodiled to death. >> that is a danger. that is where marco and schumer and other have to hold the line. i commend the gang of eight for doing what they are trying to do. the key is the enforcement. i like the high skilled worker. i like the fact that there is no federal benefits to anybody until they he actually get in line and ultimately get citizenship. that is huge for a lot of the conservatives and quite frankly many of the democrats. >> chris: marjorie this is an issue you worked on a lot. your sense of this and its political viability? >> there has been no time like the present in that we saw the power of the latino vote coming out of the past election. both parties know the inevitablity and necessity of having the voting poll going into future elections. we had voices we never had before. sean hannity onboard with the policy and mark zuckerberg speaking out on it. the republican national committee. and 80% of the public agreeing about the path t

schumer from new york and cain from arizona. the road that rubio plays is the lynch pen. if he walks, the deal dies. and he's well aware of that. part of what he's doing last week when they were trying to say there is a deal, there is a deal. hold on. no, no. not done yet. we need marco rubio in the room because without him he needs to have the conservative tea party. >> and that's the next phase of this that there's a couple of members of the house raul labrador is from what i can tell the real leader from the tea parties. all of them are washingtonning what he's doing. i think they're willing to talk about it much the same way that marco rubio is. there are secret but they are as secret as anything in washington. >> how does this go from talks to legislation? >> a couple of things that that i'm not quite sure. one is what kind of border security benchmarks to do you need in order to allow the rest of the process to go forward? and when are they put in place. this is something that you can negotiate it by degrees. >> certain things happen. >> right. so there's a border security elem

think it would appropriate to refer to the bill as the schumer and mccain bill. these two senators started the process and they have the smallest egos among us. [laughter] they would wear it better than the rest of us. but i hope the third time is the charm. this is the thirled time i've been involved trying to fix this problem. i think 2013 is the year to fix immigration. i really believe it. we're either going to get a bill or have one hell of a fight. why do we have 11 million illegal immigrants? more people could not get here for whatever reason. america is an idea. no one owns it. it is not owned by a race or ethnic group. it is an idea from 200 years and it has grown and gotten better. lonas we keep that idea inem tact and people will want to come here. that is the good new bad news. the good news is we have a right to control who wants to come here. people want to come here if they have to walk through a desert or swim a river with a kid on their back they will come. that is a testament of what we've done as a nation. all we're telling the world, our friends we have to creat
schumer said he thinks we could see a deal as early as next week. >> with the agreement between business and labor, every major policy issue has been resolved on the gang of eight. we have all agreed that we're not going to come to a final agreement until we see draft legislative language and agree on that. we have drafted some of it already. the rest will be drafted this week. >> michael: how tough is a gang if chuck schumer is in it? some republicans said they wouldn't agree to anything until the boarder is absolutely secure. >> people still get threw, but we have a reasonable expectation of catching them. we don't need a saled border we need a secure border. >> michael: where there is a flicker of bipartisan agreement there is a republican ready to douse it with a big budget of cold water. and in this case marco rubio is holding the bucket of water in his case. he urged the senate to slow the whole thing down by just having hearings rather than a vote. and finally to the massive holes in our gun safety laws. texas district attorney john mccain clel land a
, robert mendez new jersey, chuck schumer new york and michael bennett colorado and i think schumer is the head of this group. >> yes, he is. >> go ahead. >> well, senator schumer and mccain met with reporters last week, and basically mccain said if they pass this bill republic the republicans back on the playing field where they can compete. you can't compete in a country where the hispanics are going to be the majority of some states. so there is political incentive on the republicans side. americans for tax reform did a poll among republicans only. two-thirds of republicans support this bill as it's described. you call it amnesty. i don't call it amnesty if you have to pay back taxes, pay some pretty hefty fees and it's 13 years before you can become citizen. but this does legalize people, gets them out of the shadows, and strengthens our defenses, frankly, if you know who is in the country as opposed to just having people in the shadows. and i would say call them undocumented immigrants. illegal aliens i think is a rather offensive determine. >> undocumented democrats. >> they a
it would be appropriate to refer to the bill as a schumer mccain bill. these two senators really started this process. they have the smallest egos among us. [laughter] they would wear it better than the rest of us. i hope the third time is the charm. this is the third time i have been involved and try to fix this problem. ofhink 2013 is a year immigration reform. we have many people involved. we will either have a bill or get into a heck of a fight. why do we have 11 million immigrants? america is an idea. no one owns it. it is not owned by a race or ethnic group or any particular religion. it is an idea where it has grown for 200 years and gotten better. we will always have a problem, but as long as we keep that idea in tact of -- we have a right and responsibility to control for the good of our nation. the fact that we have so many people wanting to come here anyway they can come here, walk through the desert, swam a river with a kid on their back, they will come. that is a testament to what we have done as a nation for 200 years. all we're telling the world and and our neighbors and o
:13 a.m. sunday morning. right before chuck schumer was going to be on with chuck todd on nbc's "meet the press." that was not by accident. i think marco rubio knew that schumer, another member of the gang of eight trying to make the immigration deal was likely to say look, it's all over but the shouting, we have to dot the i's and crossed t's, but we've reached an accord. for marco rubio it's about short-term and longer-term thinking and impact. he wants to be in the room to make a deal. that would help as he goes forward in a general election context. but in a primary, in a presidential primary. he can't look like he got rolled by chuck schumer and the white house, he has to look like he put up a fight. he got everything he can possibly get and they capitulated to him, not the other way around. i think it's probably not totally done. and chuck schumer said something to thaesk. i think a lot of this is about perception, how this looks for marco rubio in the room and what it looks like when it comes out, if there is a deal. >> this involves the chamber of commerce and the labor moveme

the flow of guest workers in into the country and leaders who worked out the details with senator schumer friday night. if approved their deal would cover low-skilled year-round temporary workers. it would allow that group 20,000 to 75,000 annual visas in the first four years and up to 200,000 annual visas depending on the unemployment rate after that. once in the u.s. guest workers can change jobs and pursue a path to citizenship, and guest workers would be allowed to fill no more than 15,000 high skilled construction jobs. and as for wages, they would pay for the wages earned by an already established work with similar experience and skills, which ever one is higher. if you're wondering what the rest of the immigration bill might look like, senator schumer offered this. >> people will be legalized not citizens but they will be allowed to work, come out of the shadows, travel. then we'll make sure that the border is secure and we have specific metrics that are in the bill. i am not going to get into what they are to make sure that happens. and then after that happens there is a path to c
, and chuck schumer's comments over the weekend also say that. lou: schumer talking as if the deal were done, steve, and this business suddenly pushing back against the idea there's a definition for border security. the department of homeland security has been charged with defining precisely that for the past more now than two years. what's going on? >> right, rye. it's not the first time chuck has been premature in declaring a deal was done before a deal was done. he's got a long history of doing that. look, it's not clear yet that president obama wants to kill this, i think it's equally likely that he wants it pulled further left. if you're the president looking at this from the white house's perspective, you think i'm going to continue to pull this thing to the left, continue to make demands, harder on republicans, but give the something closer to what i want, and more interestingly, and i think more pressingly, closer to what the democratic interest groups want, he wins either way, wins if it's done because he blames republicans and runs on it in 2014 and wins if he gets this new compreh
the nra. chuck schumer was nowhere to be seen as the press conference. toomey thought having him there would hurt their cause. schumer and others had been working with manchin for weeks, but coburn wouldn't agree with a paper trail of gun sales. once he was gone the group added toomey instead and the new coalition was able to come up with a moderate plan that pleased everyone. and that seems to be enough for the 14 republican senator who just yesterday had been sheiking about filibustering any gun bill that came to the floor. ted cruz actually cancelled a press conference this morning on the filibuster that he had scheduleded. but he didn't let reporters know. so when they showed up there was an empty podium with a handwritten note. cruz's spokesperson says he still plans to filibuster but that doesn't matter. the families of newtown were on capitol hill today meeting with the senators. >> i'm a parent . . . and a grandparent . . . >> let's all share.

and arizona have a message for critics of comprehensive immigration reform. charles schumer and john mccain say, any bill that does not have up at the citizenship will go nowhere. at a judiciary hearing today, our first steps protested the rush to pass the gang of eight immigration proposal. joining us now, senator jeff sessions, a member of the judiciary on services in carmen the public works and budget committee. good to have you with this. first, your reaction to the schumer mccain declaration and challenge. >> this is the way they have done this whole process. they reached an agreement in secret in have agreed to stick together on all of the major principles in that bill. and so it is unsurprising that they are telling the world there not going to consider any other way to deal with people compassionately. other than giving them a full path the citizenship. now, my view has been for quite a number of years that after 1986 anyone that enters the country illegally should never be given to every benefit that we give to people who come legally, and i think that there is no moral or legal ca

by senators pat toomey and joe manchin. senator chuck schumer agreed not to appear when the two rolled o out the deal, because toomey didn't want to stand next to them, for political reasons. senator mark kirk, also co-sponsor of the compromise also agreed not to appear. at the news conference, toomey and manchin said all parties, including the nra, had been in the room. >> i've got to tell you, candidly, i don't consider criminal background checks to be gun control. >> we've taken all sides into consideration. have the nra sitting there, all people on all sides of the gun issue. >> have the nra sitting there, which then confirms exactly what we've been hearing about what happened two nights ago. while it was clear from the outset the nra would not support the bill, the question was, would they oppose it? well, now we've got an answer. being at the table did not stop the nra from releasing this letter it sent to senators after dinner last night. "the nra is unequivocally opposed to s. 649. in addition, the nra will oppose any amendments offered to. 649 that restrict fundamental second amendm

the fact that we ha four mem omee who worked with others in forming bipartisan consensusd k senator schumer and senator durbin, senator graham and senator plate for that. and of course, senator feinstein, who is probably more about immigration than -- thought me more about immigration than i ever would have learned otherwise. and the bill includes what some are calling triggers, i'm concerned they could long delay green cards for those that want to make full and contributing participants in our society. i do not want people to move out of the shadows, but then be struck in -- stuck in some underclass, just as we should not fault dreamers for bringing children, should not make states and futures dependent on border conditions on which they have no control and i'm disappointed we're not treating families all equally i abhor the discrimination that gay and lesbian families face, i'm concerned about the visa changes for siblings, the lack of priority for how the points base visa system works in practice. these are all things we can discuss. i can't help but question whether spending millions mo
's what's interesting -- both lindsey graham and senator schumer who were on the show are members of that gang of eight that came up with this bipartisan reform for the immigration system. we've now heard opponents of the immigration system saying this is another reason why we need to take a look at what's going on here. you get the feel the slow walk is beginning. boert senator graham and senator schumer make the case this is the time for emigration reform. 40% i believe is the figure of the folks who are in the united states without documentation have overstayed their visas and they say that within their legislation is a mechanism and a system through which that will no longer be the case, that when people are in this country, you will know who they are. now let's remember that one of these young men -- the yucker brother was a u.s. citizen, the other was a permanent resident. i don't know how far that kind of system would reach out. but nonetheless, they think that now is the precise time to have immigration reform, not a time to slow it down. >> candy crowley, thanks so much,
calling announcement of a deal premature. but senator chuck schumer says this deal is not in jeopardy. >> i talked to marco yesterday, we had great conversations and he is protecting some of the things that he thinks are very important in the bill but i don't think that will stand in the way in any way of any final agreement. >> is there a disagreement between the two of you how close we are to a deal? >> it is semantics, business and labor have an agreement and on the future flow that has been the issue that has undone immigration reform in the past. >> i want to bring in "washington post" columnist, dana milbank and msnbc contributor and slate reporter, dave weigle. good morning. >> good morning. >> just a couple of headlines, why marco rubio needs to slow walk immigration a word of caution from rubio on immigration. dana, what's his strategy here? >> his strategy is to get this deal done without antagonizing rush limbaugh and the others in the conservative base who are crucial if he is going to run for president in 2016, he is going to remain a major force in con
